Sunday Post/ It's Monday. What Are You Reading?



The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

No reviews this week, but it feels like I'm reading a little bit of everything. I have a sequel going on, plus a bunch of stuff I want to get to, and a re- read of an old fantasy classic.

Fractured (Slated, #2) The Paladin Prophecy (The Paladin Prophecy, #1)

Pawn of Prophecy (The Belgariad, #1)  Magic Marks the Spot (The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates, #1) A Poisoned Season (Lady Emily, #2)

Fractured is the sequel to Slated and is very good so far. You can see my review of Slated here.

The Paladin Prophecy looks good too, I read the first few chapters and it was pretty involving.

Yes Pawn of Prophecy- I haven't read the Belgariad in years, and to be honest I don't know if I ever actually finished it- so in between higher priority stuff I'm going to give it a shot again.

Check out this very well done fan video of Ben Stark's adventures beyond the Wall. They had a full crew working on this and the whole deal. The ranger and the wildling woman come off well I think. Courtesy of io9.

How was your week?

    1. I am too. When I picked this one up in the store it was a lot denser than I thought, and looks very original, so I'm hoping it will be really good. I hope to get to it soon!

    1. It's quite good, and fast moving- she doesn't waste a lot of time. Something happens every chapter it seems like and its compulsively readable. :)

  6. I truthfully don't recognize any of these except Fractured, which I am curious about. However, I look forward to when you review the others so I have an idea about them. Thanks for sharing your titles.

  9. You've got some very good books to read. I love the Tasha Alexander books. I haven't read Slated. I think I will have to go check it out! I hope you're having a good reading week.

    1. So far so good! I just finished Fractured, the sequel to Slated. I like the Tasha Alexander series too, I've only read the first one and I know another is coming soon. Anxious to read more of those. Too many books!

  10. I love the Belgariad! Actually, I think I'm in need of a re-read of that series and the Mallorean sometime in the next year. And I need to finish up The Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates book -- I had problems with it on my e-reader, but now that my computer is fixed (yay!) I can read it on my screen. I enjoyed what I did read of it!

    Have a great week, Greg!

  11. The cover of Fractured seriously caught my attention - haven't heard of it, so I'm off to check out your review of the first one. I haven't read the Belgariad either, looks like I have some catching up to do! Thanks for stopping by last week - sorry it took me so long to stop back, it's been an insane week. HOpe you had a good one :-)
